    Chef #784013's Note:

    Adapted from Epicurious. The original recipe calls for 1/4 cup heavy cream but I leave it out. Also: I use dry/cooking sherry instead of Sercial Madeira, vacuum packed roasted and peeled chestnuts available at the Korean grocery store, and vegetable broth instead of the chicken broth in the original.
